Weekly fun

Thanks to Montgomeryville Cycle Center and Funk Brewing, we will be giving away two growlers of Funk beer each week during the season! Be sure to thank our sponsors (with your dollars).   


Each week, your entry covers a start in the 4-lap race and the 3-lap race. Do both or one. Doesn't matter to us as long as you're having fun!

Black Friday 100

On Friday, November 25, we will repeat the best-worst idea ever to ride 100k or 100mi (depending on how crazy you are). Thanks to Jake Looney and Finn Harrington, we are *blessed* with this idea. This is not included in the series registration but put it on your calendar! It will be like a 6-pack ride with a $10 minimum donation (for rider insurance for the day). Winners… well, we'll figure out what a winner is through the day. I mean, it's mind bonkers but also the best day of riding all year. Anyways, winners take all the beer and whatever other donations are put in the pot unless we decide otherwise on hour 6…


Course tear down on November 26 (or 27). Let us know if you're able to help at fifthstreetcx@gmail.com or send a message through BikeReg.

Park at 164 Kline's Lane and Minor St., Emmaus, PA 18049, in the lot at the intersection, and then ride into the recycling center.
